When Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue learned a close friend was getting divorced after nearly 30 years of marriage, the actress and the talk show host — who themselves are celebrating 40 years of marriage this month — were shaken. Thomas, who can remember hiding in the bushes when she was a child to watch 18-year-old Elizabeth Taylor leave for the church for the first of eight ill-fated marriages, thought that a relationship that had weathered three or four decades ought to be able to go the dista...
